I've published the Leicaphilia blog since 2014. I'm creating photo book of +/- 120 pages with +/- 80 B&W photos. The title of the work is "Car Sick" and the photos are mostly taken out of car windows during my travels in the USA.
I've written of the project here: http://leicaphilia.com/help-a-brother-out/
The book will not be a simple POD, but will be published by Bookmobile Printers in Minneapolis, Minn, a fine art printer who specializes in small-run fine-art books for museums and small publishers. It will use the best materials available - linen hardcover, duplex printed on heavyweight photo-quality paperstock, CMYK photo printing.
My funding goal of $3000 anticipates a small run of 80 books along with marginal pre-production design assistance from a third party designer.
I'm not intending to make a cent on the work; rather, it's a labor of love and a means to share my work with my readership.
As such, every contributor of 1) $35 will entitle you to one copy of "Car Sick" shipped anywhere in the US; while 2) $45 will get you a copy shipped anywhere in the world.
I'll keep everyone informed of the progress of the production through Leicaphilia. I anticipate books ready to be shipped sometime in Spring of 2020.
Your support is really appreciated.
